How To Save Money On Your Monthly Bills In Your Indianapolis Apartment

Everyone likes to save money on monthly bills in Indianapolis, but is it really feasible when you reside in an apartment? While reducing your lease would be nice,, instead, think about your utility bills.

Whether you live in a studio or a three-bedroom apartment, there are many methods you can save money on monthly bills on your Indianapolis apartment.

Air filter HVAC maintenance in Indianapolis

Change Your Furnace Air Filter and Use Less Energy

Plugged up air filters cause your HVAC system to work harder and expend more energy. Dirty filters lead to a more expensive utility bill for you. A fresh filter will not only make your HVAC system run better, but it should also help prevent inconvenient breakdowns. Anyone who's experienced the furnace die in the middle of a frigid winter night will agree it's well worth checking and changing your air filter.

You can purchase an air filter at any big box or home improvement retailer. Just make certain you get the right size, as a more spacious apartment could take a larger air filter than a one-bedroom. You might also wish to find out if the maintenance staff provides complimentary replacements. Check the filter every month, even if it's estimated to last for 90 days. If you hold it in front of a light and can't see through it, that's a good sign it's time for a replacement.

Save Money on Monthly Bills with LED Lights

There are numerous good ideas for saving money on monthly bills in Indianapolis, but one of the best is with indoor lighting. LED bulbs utilize less electricity than typical incandescent light bulbs and work much longer. If you're concerned about the upfront purchase price, don't be. The expense of LED bulbs has fallen dramatically through the years, and there are several affordable alternatives.

The savings here is two-fold, as not only will you reduce energy use, you'll also benefit from not having to purchase replacement bulbs as frequently. Check with your community’s maintenance staff as they might utilize LED bulbs and supply you with them!

Automate Those New Lights With Smart Bulbs

Were you aware that your Google Home or Amazon Echo does more than just play that song you're trying to listen to? Using a smart light or smart plug, you can activate lights through your smartphone app or verbal commands.

If you fail to switch off a light you may do so right from the app rather than allowing it to burn the entire day. Or manage your energy waste even further by putting your lights on a timer to turn on and off automatically.

These innovative and easy solutions give peace of mind in more situations. If you're gone visiting relatives or on a work trip, you can set your lights to turn on automatically. You can give the appearance and make it look like you're home by setting the light to flip on at the normal time you return home.
